is way up in the polls, says he will get rid of it if elected. >> the obama administration is denying a report that advisers considered replacing vice president biden in the 2012 campaign. the claim, though not the first we have heard of it, comes in a new book. fox news media analyst howaurd curts tells us who was next in line. >> a new book monday which happened to be obtained by the times and then the post, said white house officials considered replacing joe biden on the ticket. it's a political eye opener from what we heard in the amateur, which reported the white house put out feelers to see if hillary clinton was interested in taking over the vice president's spot. this latest book now reports that the president's top aides ordered polling and focus groups in late 2011 to determine whether biden should be booted and replaced by clinton. but the idea was dropped after the research found that an obama/clinton ticket wouldn't do much to boost the president's chances. bill daley, who was then the white house chief of staff, told the "new york times" it was due diligence to at least
an air strike on a syrian military base today, according to an obama administration official. the target, missiles and other equipment that israel feared would fall into the hands of hezbollah, the lebanon based shiite political party that the u.s. state department classifies as a terrorist organization. let's bring in senator bob menendez of new jersey, chair of the foreign relations committee which just held a hearing a few hours ago on the situation in syria. senator, good to see you. thanks for coming in. we appreciate it. this is obviously a good sign if true that 21 out of 23 syrian chemical weapons facilities have been destroyed or rendered inoperable but how can we be sure that that's it, that these are the only facilities? >> well, that's exactly the question i asked of the state department today, because public reports indicated that we believed there were 45 sites or so in syria, so while this is certainly much welcome that the 21 sites and the machinery to produce chemical weapons have been destroyed, we need access to all of the sites as well as ultimately a conclusion as to
are they being straight and honest with you from the obama administration? it is not too over the top. i shouldn't have to do this. i shouldn't have to make these kind of threats. they should provide in a responsible way those who lived through benghazi to be interviewed separate and apart from the obama administration to find out what happened before during and after and i am so sad to say to the families this is the anniversary of the election, a year later the congress really doesn't know anything what happened in benghazi from those who lived through it. >> we are talking about someone like jay johnson, who is the president's nominee to be the new secretary of homeland security or as you can see janet yellen, the new chair of the federal reserve. big jump up. question: how long are you prepared to hold up their nominations and everyone else's, people who are going to be doing and need to do important work for the country? >> the only way this will work is if my republican colleagues get behind me and say to my democratic friend in the senate and the administration we support lindsay's reque
administration is reporting that a weekend crash of the obama care website has now been fixed. things are back up and running again. but up and running is, of course, a relative term. four weeks into the obama care rollout, where does the controversial program stand right now? where is it heading? let's have a serious discussion right now between the "new york times" columnist nicholas kristof and bill kristol. thanks for coming in. do you have an understanding how the administration could screw this up, the signature achievement of president obama, during these past four weeks? >> it's astonishing. i think the republicans completely blew it when they were diverting everybody from this mistake by focusing on the government shutdown and then the obama administration completely blew it by having an absolutely awful rollout and then waiting so long to acknowledge its severity and waiting for the surge. so the only thing i can say is that i think that attention was broken among so many different folks in the obama administration, that there was no single adult really in charge. >> do you have a good
few days. the obama administration announcing that the website will be down every day from 1:00 to five a.m. eastern time while it is being fixed. if you're out on the west coast, by 10 p.m. tonight you won't have access to the website for several hours. so no late night shopping for any of you on the west coast. senator kelly ayote is calling on president obama to order a timeout. the new new hampshire republican wants a bipartisan group to convene about the problems with the website and the law. there are serious concerns about obamacare's long term financial liability. early numbers from state exchanges, nearly all of those enrolled are being funneled into medicaid, not insurance plans that the system will depend upon for financeing. >> look, the system will never look unless there are five to seven million people in the private side of this exchange, not the medicaid side side. they are no near that. jenna: the architect of obamacare says he is not worried. >> we have until all the way to march 31st to get to five to seven million, we expect naturally, i don't pay attenti

morning everybody, i'm martha maccallum. the issues as we said continue today as the obama administration is scrambling to get this whole thing fixed. but top republicans say they think this may just be the beginning into the website was supposed to be the easy part of this. so i see actually this is just the tip of the iceberg or problems with bigger problems to come but the democrats i think are at a point of high anxiety. bill: that was senator barrasso from yesterday. sebelius is on the hot seat this week testifying on what has been an unmitigated disaster. jonah goldberg, leads our coverage, editor-at-large, "national review." good morning you to. you've been studying this over the weekend. another crash overnight. what happened this time? >> this is one of the contractors, the data services hub which provides information to the insurers and to other government agencies, it went dark and sent everything into a sail spin. they say they will try to fix it as quickly as possible. bill: republicans are talking all weekend. they believe this is the just the tip of the iceberg. if that is

surrounding the website the obama administration officially granted a six week extension for shoppers to sign up for coverage next year. you now have until march 31st to do so. course correction of the roll out of obama care may be the least of the white house's problems. for years president obama denied that the affordable care act would change health care coverage for millions of americans. in fact it was a key component of the president's sales pitch to the public. >> if you like your health care plan you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. nobody will force you to leave your health care plan. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. your employer provides you health insurance on the job, nobody is talking about messing with that. if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. >> but now an nbc news report finds the opposite happens to be true. buried in a document from 2010 of obama care regulations, lisa myers discovered the white house officials were

.s. under the obama administration, is backing off a lot of the burden sharing, a lot of the heavy lifting that traditionally the u.s. has done in support of its allies over the past. >> because of the fallout, bought of the anger amongst the world leaders, julian, do you think someone's head should roll over this? >> well, we're going to see what the administration does. i think two things to remember. president obama himself raised a lot of the expectations about the differences with how he would conduct national security operations and those resonated both here and around the world. so it might be that in the end, he tries to blame someone. he himself now by -- with this report coming out that he ordered this to stop, it's something of an admission this shouldn't be business as usual. and the second thing is, this is a surveillance that's very different than people were used to in previous years because of e-mail and internet spying. so i think the president is going to do something. and i do think he's feeling that the political fallout is significant. >> christiane and julian, my than

the obama administration has known the president's vow was untrue since 2010 even as the president continued to repeat the misleading claim over and over and over again. jon: as it turns out millions of americans with individual policies are finding they can not keep their current plan despite the president's promises. four sources deeply involved in the affordable care act tell nbc news, 50 to 75% of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a cancellation letter or the equivalent over the next year. well the white house has a response to that. they say the consumers who are getting notices are in plans that do not provide all these protections but in the vast majority of cases those same insurers will automatically shift their enrollees to a plan that provides new consumer protections and for nearly half of individual market enrollees, discounts through premium tax credits. but you never heard the president say that. this morning the house ways and means committee is examining all the significant ongoing problems with the rollout of the affordable

president obama reluctantly signed, saying the facility had to remain open. it is true that the administration one by one is trying to place those deemed ready for release around the world, but that's a slow and laborious process. some of the people like khalid sheikh mohammed himself will probably get military commissions to probably be sentenced to death, but there is this other category of people for whom there is not enough evidence to try them, but our view is they're too dangerous to release. their status remain very uncertain and they appear to be in a legal netherworld that will not end anytime in the foreseeable future at all. >> with that, jeffrey toobin, thank you. >>> jeanne moos finds jesus in a most unlikely place. could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. everybody knows that. well, did you know that when a tree falls in the forest and no one's around, it does make a sound? ohhh...ohhh...oh boy! i'm falling. everybody look out! ahhhhh...ugh. little help here. geico. fifteen minutes could save you...well, you know. anybody? help the gulf whe

. it is a disastrous malfunction on the biggest plan that the president pushed in his administration. the fact that he is so detached is concerning. >> go a head, chris. >> i find it humorous when they talk about obama care and health care in general. i want waiting for a health care proposal on the other side or fixes. are there problems with the roll out absolutely. the question is how do you fix those? the administration is focused on fixing the problem. six months we have serious issues. i hope i hear more solutions than simply critizing. >> the republicans are not your problem. who is critizing the roll out. john stewart. saturday night live. that's why the paradigm shifted. you are angerring a lot of people. >> come up with a credible solution to fix it. >> you know the whole roll. we have come up with many. >> he is practicing his lines today. >> thank you. >> gentle man we'll talk to you later. >> in the meanwhile, there is new concerns about the angle of obama care and if your doctor participates in the program. there is a new poll by the new york immediately society and 44 percent of the new
roadblocks. and his administration will, again, be working to kbet his health departmentca health care web site back on track. >> good to see both of you. >> really rotting president obama's second term saying that on meet-the-press today. trud or a little bit of sour grapes. >> well, i don't know why this was the moment that mit romney chose to kind of come back and spring back on to the national stage when it comes to health care. but i have think what he said was largely right. the president's biggest legislative achievement is obama care. and he won reelection, at least partly on the fact that the american people believed in his policy vision, including that victory. now it needs to be implemented and they have this huge probable with the web site. beyond the web site is this whole idea of being able to shop and choose your health care policy. and then after that, it's going to be health care delivery. i think the american people, if you look at the president's approval ratings, are very concerned with what they see. >> so julia, the president was in boston earlier this week touting he
is on the administration to do that. >> republicans have been infl t inflicting and reflecting ourselves into fits. the white house, i'm not sure they even recognize how in peril the rest of barack obama's presidency is at this point. the most devastating thing isn't that you lose credibility in your, among your press corps which seems to be happening with obama's pledge that turns out not to be true if you like your plan you can keep it. the most devastating thing to obama's white house isn't that the republicans are united against them. democrats were united against george w. bush for the entirety of his presidency. the most devastating thing for the obama white house is that they are losing credibility among democrats and they are doing that because they are incompetent. not because they are wrong. there are a lot of democrats willing to go along with that. willing to get behind him. he won two presidential elections in a decisive manner. but they have roven that they do not know how to run a competent policy process and proving now that they can't run a political process behind their policy in
, the administration went too fast too far. they wanted to get the green energy initiative out, that was one of the big platforms of president obama, but they did it -- it's almost like the health care rollout. they really didn't do the correct research, and the chinese swooped in, and they're killing us -- bill: they are? >> absolutely. cheaper and faster without the regulations that we have -- bill: so when it comes to the industry of solar power, there are winners -- >> sure. bill: a lot of losers, but apparently it's beijing. >> exactly. they're making all of the cash. and look, overall solar and wind is still a minute, small part of overall energy production. we still run on oil, natural gas. that is not going to change for the next 20 years. but what the rollout of the epa initiatives, in my opinion, was the problem was that they didn't effectively look at the cost, the environmental costs which is what we're finding out today with this study on this colorado plant and abound solar, but they didn't look at the long-term financial implication of cleaning up solar production. and americans don't wa
